Press release from the issuing company
RESTON, VA, December 18, 2006 - NPES The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies will conduct a series of Regional Roadshows in the Chicago, New York/New Jersey, New England, and Ohio regions.
Running from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the meetings will provide in-depth vendor-customer dialogue, a spotlight on selling strategies for the vendor community, valuable market data, and networking opportunities.
“Our Regional Roadshow series was conceived as a convenient way to deliver robust, relevant content to our member companies close to their own offices,” says Ralph Nappi, NPES President. “By spending part of their work day with us at a nearby venue, they can launch into the new year with a boost of industry knowledge, sales and customer service insights, and strong networking value that our members have come to expect from NPES.”
Headlining the agenda, an all-star team of printing company leaders from the given region will engage in dialogue with NPES members on industry topics of mutual concern and share their insights on the marketplace.
The meetings will also feature a 90-minute workshop by veteran consultant
Carl Henry on Sales Skills for Everyone: Supercharging Your Sales Organization to Win and Keep Customers.
Rounding out the agenda will be updates on the latest Market Data findings from NPES and the Print Industries Market information and Research Organization (PRIMIR), and a report on the Association's newest Strategic Planning initiatives.
The cost for each event is $150 for NPES members, $95 for each additional attendee that registers from the same company. More information and registration forms are available online at http://www.npes.org/roadshows.
